This is a basically entertaining version of the little girl in the red, hooded cape who sets off to her grandmother's house with a basket of goodies and an admonition from her mother. In this instance, young Maria Garcia won out over stiff competition for the moppet lead, and the nasty, vile wolf who thinks he can disguise himself is played by Manuel "El Loco" Valdez. Given his comedic talents, it is apparent from his first scene that this wolf might be fun, and even open to reform. The setting is a small village of woodcutters, and aside from Grandmama and other stock characters, the addition of a Lovelorn Fox acts as a foil to the wolf.
